Miss Annabelle Marie **Updated with Birth Story and Pics**

Annabelle Marie
Born August 8th at 4:16 am in the water at home into her daddy's hands
7lbs. 6 oz.
20 inches long

Birth Story with Pics

She is beautiful and has a head full of dark hair. It was a fast birth (much different that DD1's 38ish hour labor). My water broke at 8:45, contractions began soon after but were fairly mild. True active labor began around 11-12ish. I was 4 cm. at 2 am, 8 cm. at 4 am, and she was out at about 15 minutes later! Thankfully I don't have the slightest hint of a tear or anything and am feeling great. I'll write the full birth story out later once I've had a chance to figure out what all happened!

I will post a pic as soon as I get one on my blog.

Thanks for all the well wishes on the my water broke post!

Thanks ladies! It was an amazing experience and I am so so happy that it all worked out how I wanted!

We are babymooning away, although the all night marathon nursing is getting really tiring!
